Day 26

I think it's a good thing to know one's weaknesses or faults. Several years ago, I was playing a party game with some close friends. A deck of cards contained several character traits, and when one was drawn the object was for each person to name who in the room they felt the card most accurately described.

One card contained the phrase "You ask this person what time it is, and they proceed to explain to you how to build a clock." I distinctly remember being completely shocked that all of my friends chose me as the person the card described. (To be fair to myself, it was actually a tie between me and my great friend Maggie!) Surely I didn't ramble on THAT much . . . did I?

It's funny how things stick with you. This game was played on an ordinary evening nearly 20 years ago, but I still remember my reaction. I absolutely do not hold a grudge against my friends because it was all in good fun. But anytime I catch myself going on and on . . . and on . . . about particular topic, I often think about that night and occasionally whisper to myself "Shut up, Watch-Maker"!
